Review for MARIAN'S DREAM: Philanthrophy for Animal Advocates (Marian Rosenthal Foundation), Brunswick , ME, USA
Marian's Dream, named as a tribute to Esther Mechler's deceased sister who loved animals, is a fearless leader in the area of cat and dog overpopulation. The mission of the organization, to reduce the number of excess companion animals, began in the 1980's. At that time, Esther Mechler, started a program called Spay/USA to address the source of the problem through education and discounted spay/neuter services. The organization's mission was so successful, that ultimately tens of thousands of calls were received monthly from folks seeking to address the overpopulation situation. Marian's Dreams has initiated "Fix by Five", a most practical approach to cat overpopulation. Kudos to Marian's Dream for staying true to their mission against great odds!
